A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog, Sylvia centers around Greg and Kate, a couple married twenty-two years and returning to Manhattan from the suburbs, after their children have left the nest. Greg's career in finance is winding down, while Kate's is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Their lives are turned upside down when Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives. "I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen…" —NY Daily News. Just off a Tony nominated Broadway revival, Sylvia is a perfect opening to the Pollard Theatre's 30th Anniversary season.

Heathers The Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another, more nefarious plan.
Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, Heathers The Musical was a perfect fit for the Pollard's October musical, offering audiences a glimpse into America's most horrifying institutions – high school.
